What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: January 2, 2021
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age. Finally on October 3, 2020 at age 72, I was able to accomplish my goal of shooting my age. Shot 71 at Coto de Caza - south course from the blue tees.

First out on a warm morning. Course was super busy today. (Maybe to beat the heat?) Greens still have not completely healed from the aeration. Still a bit bumpy, and slower than usual. Fairways are excellent, Tee boxes and bunkers also in great condition. Rough is just OK.
With the upcoming Windmill Classic Tourament, I suspect they will get the greens in shape and bring back the speed. We'll see» Close

Taking advantage of the great senior rates, nice to get back out to Mountain Meadows. This course has never been kind to me, and today was no exception. I enjoy the slopes in the fairways although as I age the course is somewhat more difficult to walk, but still not bad. Agree with the last reviews that it is very beneficial to have local knowledge here, but that does not seem to help me par holes 4 & 5. Always struggle on those two holes.
Condition was about what I expected. Green could have been quicker, and the bunkers could use some maintenance. (Raking) Otherwise the course is very playable. Staff has always been very pleasant here and accommodating. Recommend this course to anyone who has not given it a try. Course is interesting and challenging.» Close

First out on a mild morning. Not very busy, which was nice. Rocky in the pro shop is always great to deal with and makes coming here all that much more enjoyable. Wish more golf shop personal were more like him.
I have always liked this track, and despite the questionable condition, I keep coming back. Conditions today were simply not good. The greens still have not yet recovered from the aeration, so were slow and bumpy. Fairways had lots of bare areas, thin areas, thick spots, etc. Same with the rough. You never knew what you'd get. Tee boxes were awful. Greenside bunkers were in many cases "small lakes". Those that were not filled with water had plenty on sand but appear not to have been raked since ....... forever.
I see so much potential in this course if someone would spend the $$ to restore it to where it once was. However, if that happened, I'm sure it would become super crowded and over priced, so be careful what you wish for» Close

As I've said many times before, having Ruth in the pro shop makes all the difference for me when playing this course. Arrived early as usual, but was advised that there was an issue with opening so no access to the pro shop, no carts, etc. But Ruth gave us the OK to tee off and pay after the round. Then while we were playing the second hole, she had sent out someone to bring us a cart, rather than wait until we made the turn to pick it up. Just that little extra service and thoughtfulness speaks volumes.
The greens are still healing from the recent aeration, so they were a bit bumpy & slow, but puttable. Good coverage in the fairways. Tee boxes and rough were OK. Bunkers had not yet been maintained, but did have plenty of sand.
Always enjoy playing here, but it is just that intangible that keeps me coming back.» Close

First off on a cooler morning. First round on the North since they completed aeration of the greens. Truth is they actually rolled fairly well all things considered, although much slower than usual. Longer putts were not a big problem, but shorter putts seemed to wobble their way to the cup. Fairways are looking good, fine coverage, nice and green. Tee Boxes and bunkers excellent. Rough could be better, but not too difficult.
If these greens heal as quickly as the South Course greens did a few weeks ago, I suspect within two weeks they should be just fine.» Close
